授课老师: 陈卉 

Hui Chen received her degree in accounting. She grew up in a family with a strong passion  for art. She has been teaching children arts and crafts for 4 years now. 

Hui Chen’s teaching philosophy is to encourage students to put their own creative spin on  the projects and allow everyone to display their individual imagination through their work.  Our class will utilize a wide variety of materials and will provide students with a diverse  learning experience. Because of the online format, the class will be focused on projects that  primarily use readily available household materials such as paper towel rolls, egg cartons,  cereal boxes, water bottles, etc. 

电玩设计/Electronic Game Design: Platform Games (For Ages 8 to 14 years) During the Electronic Game Design: Platform classes, students will use Construct to create  their own video game. A platform game is a side-scrolling, Mario-type game where students  program characters and a two-dimensional obstacle course. They attempt to avoid or  overcome enemies and reach an end goal on multiple levels. At the end of the class,  students take home a copy of the game they create.

History of Chinese Culture Seminars

History of Chinese Culture Seminars Series: Speaker Yue Zhang will try to explain the history  of Chinese Culture in three dimensions (the thickness of the culture itself, the vertical depth  of historical changes, and the horizontal breadth of culture comparison), understanding the  history from both Chinese culture and Western Culture. 

中国文化史系列讲座:这一系列讲座将尝试在三度空间讲解中国文化(文化自身的厚 度,历史变迁的纵向深度,以及多文化比较的横向广度),用东西方两只眼睛同时观看 中国文化。 

SAT Math 

In this class, students will be taught math topics in algebra, geometry, statistics, and pre  calculus in order to prepare for both the math with and without calculator sections on the  SAT. They will be given multiple practice problems in class and learn strategies to complete  the section with both accuracy and speed. In addition to reviewing the concepts, the class  will discuss strategies for solving typical SAT questions.  

SAT Reading/Writing 

The SAT test is very important for applying to college in the USA. Although colleges  increasingly consider other aspects of the college application, raising your SAT score will  make you a contender for the highest tier colleges. Schools that claim to be “test-optional”  will still accept SAT scores and a better score will improve your chances over someone with a  lower score or no score at all. 

The SAT is split into two sections: the math section and the Reading and Writing section.  Generally, the reading and writing section is more difficult to improve, but this class will  provide you with the skills you need to succeed on this difficult part of the test.  For the reading section, we will examine specific types of tricky test questions and how they  can be easily solved, methods to approach analyzing dense texts, and how to deal with  managing time on the test.  

For the writing section, we will review and teach grammatical concepts like punctuation and  sentence structure, understand the types of questions that are presented on the test, and  introduce common test ideas like concise wording, repetition, and sentence order. This class  will use real SAT practice tests and other reputable practice material to give you a familiarity  with the testing material.
